Thoroughly well written. Explains the feelings and thoughts we all have had. Deals with stepmonster issue beautifully. I found my husband's ex-wife in here too, almost waving from the pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly helpful 20 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an interestingly broad and honest view on the role of the stepmother and what being a stepmother feels like. It addresses the isolation and long-term corrosive effects of being a stepmother as well as looking both critically and sympathetically at the roles of the other people in the stepmother's life. It is useful to have clear acknowledgement of the difficulties a stepmother faces and confirmation that it is, in the end, important to look after oneself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic down to earth book 28 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover
I found this book a lifesaver in my early days as a stepmother. It explained a lot of the difficult feelings and put things in perspective for me. I'd recommend it to anyone in this position. Very insightful and realistic. It helped me define my role much better than a lot of other books on the subject that err too much on the side of idealism...

Anyone in a relationship with a man with children needs to read this book. I saw myself, my partner and my stepchildren in this book. I wish I had read it sooner. I have now given it to my partner to read.
